This chatper reminded one of the challenges that i went through a few months ago.
After i learned about the students' autonomy in a methodology class, i really felt it's very essentail element for students' learning. Therefore, i decided to try to build up learners' autonomy and change from teacher-centered to student-centered. But, the result of my trial was not that good or even less efficient since their parents or that learner didn't expect that teaching method. They strongly beilieved and expected teacher-centered class is more effective to get a good result in a short period. Now, i can blame that kind of failure on myself, it was from my lack of situational analysis. ^^
